March Sadness in Lawrence
After KU's first-round exit from the NCAA tournament there are a lot of sad people in and around
The amount of money local businesses make during KU's tournament runs is incredible. Every KU basketball game means packed bars and restaurants throughout
These losses also extend to advertising. With KU out, bars and restaurants don't advertise to get patrons to watch the game at their establishment. The University Daily Kansan, KU's student newspaper, we lost on tons of revenue because KU didn't make another tournament run.
As they say, there's always next year, and next year, we're loaded with young talent. Hopefully, local businesses will also be loaded after profiting from a long tournament run.
